Ban on Youtube lifted by PTA

The Ministry of Information and Technology has lifted a ban on YouTube, a popular video sharing website which was blocked in a bid to contain ‘blasphemous’ content, Dunya News reported on Wednesday.

This website was blocked in the backdrop of a PTA ban on the popular social networking website Facebook after a controversy surrounding the website hosting an event promoting caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

Protests took place across the country against Facebook’s failure to remove the offensive page of the social network.

YouTube was also blocked in the country in 2007 for about a year for what it called un-Islamic videos.
